Apr 30 - 'Jeopardy!' erupts in controversy after winner allegedly flashes white power sign
 

 



A group of former contestants of the popular quiz show “Jeopardy!” spoke out after a winner allegedly flashed a hand-gesture similar to one that has been a*sociated with a white supremacist symbol.

The former contestants accused Donahue of using a hate group hand signal, similar to a more traditional "OK" sign, saying the position of his fingers was not “clear cut.”

Donohue had previously flashed both 1 and 2 signs with his fingers after each win, symbolizing his victories, and has stated he merely indicated his victories with the gestures.


A group of former contestants of the popular quiz show ‘Jeopardy!’ spoke out after a winner allegedly flashed a hand-gesture similar to one that has been a*sociated with a white supremacist symbol.

The contestants accused three-time champion Kelly Donohue in an open letter published on Medium of using the signal and called out Jeopardy!’ for not addressing what they considered to be an offensive symbol —regardless of intent.

“A recent contestant has caused concern among ‘Jeopardy!’ viewers for two separate occurrences, and we as former contestants feel the need to speak out against the messaging that these choices communicated — either intentionally or unintentionally — by the contestant Kelly Donohue and, implicitly by a*sociation, the producers of ‘Jeopardy!’” they wrote.

The former contestants accused Donahue of using a hate group hand signal, similar to a more traditional "OK" sign, saying the position of his fingers was not “clear cut.” Donahue, the group wrote, “held his thumb and forefinger together with his other three fingers extended and palm facing inward, and he tapped his chest.”

Donohue had previously flashed both 1 and 2 signs with his fingers after each win, symbolizing his victories, and has stated he merely indicated his victories with the gestures.

“In a public Facebook post that has since been deleted, Kelly states, ‘That’s a 3. No more. No less.’ His public Facebook profile also featured a cover photo of Frank Sinatra making a similar gesture,” the group wrote.

But the group is asking the show to exercise more vigilance and to approach delicate situations cautiously to uphold the integrity of the contestants and the show.

“As people whose lives have been largely beneficially impacted by this show and its community, we really hope to see a statement and a disavowal of both of this week’s events, and we would like to see ‘Jeopardy!’ address Kelly’s behavior,” the group added.

“We know that contestants sign morals and ethics-related agreements when they prepare to appear on the show, and we would ask the production team to evaluate this situation within that framework,” they wrote. “Finally, we hope to see changes made so that future mistakes of this magnitude never make it on air.”

These people are psychotic. So if he was playing basketball and drained a three and did the same exact fu*king symbol would anybody say a fu*king word about it? If he held that sign near his d*ck and somebody looked it and he smacked the sh*t out of them, would it not be the circle game? You f*gs let some idiots on 4chan troll you into being fu*king stupid a*s bi*ches yo.

All it takes is to search your memory of someone that held the ok sign “like that”.

You won’t find it.

He’s either an elaborate troll, or he really is with the racist sh*ts.

It literally said the contestants were the ones that took offense.

It's always the "race isn't everything " "y'all got a victim mentality I'm black too and I'm not tripping " a*s n*ggas that can't read.

Also how is white people holding white people accountable a bad thing?

Some of you just don't know what you want. In order for us to make progress and eventually live in peace , questions and accusations will arise since this racialized society is all the west ever knew outside of natives .

n*gga the complaints are about an alleged racist gesture, making the whole complaint a race issue. So yes, telling people that everything ain't about race is warranted. This is Another idiotic false alarm to add to the pile of nothin

Stop defending this goofy a*s sh*t

It's like everybody is fiending for race dope

Society on a racial high right now

Annoying af
